Minister's Letter July 2016

Dear Friend in Unity,
Summer is officially here!  Yay!  I love it, don’t you?  The walks in the park among all the lush greenery, the bike rides, watching the stars on a cool evening, the tree frogs’ songs, the fireflies (some of us call them lightning bugs)! There is so much to enjoy during this summer season.
Meanwhile, at UofEL we are busying for some wonderful upcoming activities.  On August 28th, we will celebrate our 14th Anniversary of the founding of our church!  Following the 11 a.m. Sunday Service, we will host a Potluck. Following the Potluck will be a presentation by Carlton Pearson beginning at 1:30 p.m.  His workshop is entitled, “What You Want Wants You!”  If you’d like to know more about Carlton’s interesting story, visit his website at  He has been recognized as one of the Ten Most Influential Black Ministers in America by Gospel Today and!  We are blessed to have him with us.
Then on September 24th we will host our FunFest & Silent Auction.  Lots of food, fun and games planned for the day.  For further information, please take a look on this site and our church group Facebook page.  And, we will be adding info as we get closer to the launch date!
Finally, we will be hosting an eight-week film series, produced by Dr. Lee Pennington.  The series will begin September 7th and end October 26th.  
Wow, lots of fun and interesting things happening here and I am feeling so blessed to be a part of it all.  I thank God for all who come here and are a part of this beloved spiritual community.  So many willing hearts and hands! We could not carry on with meaningful ministry without them!  Enjoy the summer days, giving thanks for the seasons in nature and in our lives!  
In loving service, 
Rev. Carole Mahaffey
